BBC suspends its 3D TV services

6 July 2013 | Category: Online

The British Broadcasting Corporation has announced that it is suspending the production of 3D television programmes for an indefinite period.

The head of BBC 3D department, Kim Shillinglaw said that many of it's viewers found the 3D experience to be more hassle than it was worth. "I have never seen a very big appetite for 3D television in the UK."

The BBC has been running a trial period for the technology over the past two years. Despite the lack of interest the BBC is currently offering it's Wimbledon coverage in 3D. The last programme to be screened in 3D will be the Doctor Who episode in November.

Sports network ESPN announced earlier this week that it is also dropping the 3D format.
